The human tooth is very tough. It is common to break a tooth since they can a fracture or a crack. A broken tooth is susceptible to infections. A broken tooth can be treated by either having a dental implant, ceramic filling, dental bonding, a root canal and dental crowns. A ceramic filling is 98% effective in restoring a broken tooth. Dental bonding covers a chipped or a cracked tooth. Root canal is effective and necessary when the injury goes all the way to the pulp. Dental crowns are appropriate for a tooth that is in a poor state. Dental implants are useful when a patient has lost a tooth.
